TransPennine Express;

TransPennine Express are continuing to operate an amended timetable 

Although the new timetable is providing improved reliability and stability, TransPennine Express may still face ‘on-the-day’ challenges to its services as a result of short-notice sickness and some industrial relations issues. As such, it may be necessary to make a relatively small number of further short-notice cancellations or service amendments on a day-to-day basis.

A summary of the amended weekday timetable that will operate can be found on the TransPennine Express website. These timetables will be in place until further notice and will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

There are no planned alterations to the timetable on weekends. However, TransPennine Express services will be affected by strike action on various weekend dates until Sunday 5 June. In addition, journeys may be affected by engineering work.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Alternative travel advice:

If the train you had planned to travel on does not operate, your ticket will be valid on the next available TransPennine Express service at no extra charge.

For journeys up to and including the dates mentioned below, ticket acceptance arrangements are in place in the event of TransPennine Express service cancellations. Please travel as close to your original booked time as possible when using other operator's services:

CrossCountry (until Monday 6 June) between Leeds and Edinburgh.

Northern (until Monday 4 April) on any reasonable route. 

​​​​​​​Transport for Wales (until Sunday 5 June) between Manchester Piccadilly and Stockport / Newton-le-Willows / Manchester Airport.
